Lost or stolen ADI badge
You must contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) straight away to:
- tell them that your approved driving instructor (ADI) badge has been lost or stolen
- request a replacement badge
You cannot give driving lessons until you have a replacement.
When you contact DVSA, you’ll need to give them:
- your crime reference number if your badge was stolen - you can get this by contacting the police
- permission to use the photo from your photocard driving licence (otherwise you’ll need to post them a passport-style photograph)
It costs £3 to replace a lost or stolen badge.
You must send your old badge to DVSA if you find it later.
